Next year’s first major solar-plus-storage trade show on the calendar announced a new partnership with NABCEP to increase attendee numbers. Eligible PV professionals will be able to attend the Intersolar North America expo hall for free at the San Diego Convention Center from February 4-6, 2020, and can register for NABCEP-approved continuing education classes to receive up to nine Continuing Education Units (CEUs) they can use toward Board Certification and recertification requirements.
This is the first of several new program additions that the event will announce ahead of its move to San Diego for 2020.
“It’s not enough to just be the first major solar-plus-energy-storage event at a more convenient time of year, we also want to expand the programming available to attendees to help them start the year off with a clear business advantage,” said Wes Doane, Event Director for Intersolar North America. “We are innovating and partnering with key industry players to enhance our attendee experience for 2020. This new partnership with a leading organization like NABCEP will be a gamechanger for Intersolar programming.”
To enroll in the NABCEP classes, attendees may choose the NABCEP workshop option when they register for their expo hall or conference pass.
“Intersolar North America aligns perfectly with our mission to increase quality assurance in the workforce of this exponentially-growing field and ensure that NABCEP Board Certified professionals and Associate credential holders are able to get best-in-class training at a major industry-recognized event,” said NABCEP President and CEO Shawn O’Brien. “This is an ideal setup for PV professionals and those interested in entering the industry to gain hours for certification or recertification, while also educating themselves about new products and services at Intersolar North America’s trade show exhibition.”
With the venue and marketing provided by Intersolar North America, these workshops will be managed by NABCEP. The full schedule of workshops will be listed on the Intersolar North America website. All workshop tickets also include a free expo hall pass and ticket to Intersolar North America’s opening night party.
Intersolar North America was acquired earlier this year by Diversified Communications, a major producer of business-to-business trade show events and conferences worldwide across many industries. Diversified Communication also owns and operates its own 1.5-MW solar project in Brunswick, Maine, and is now on target to position itself for the growth in the cleantech space.
